Overview

Real Estate Billionaire. Reality TV star. President?

Donald Trump inherited a fortune from his father. But he wanted more.

Shrewd and indefatigable, he never missed an opportunity to expand his holdings. He transformed himself into an international brand. He marketed his personality into a product. 

He built an empire. But that wasn’t enough. He wanted to be President, and he was willing to do and say whatever it took.

Donald Trump, who never held political office, pulled off his ultimate acquisition: the hostile takeover of the Republican Party. Everyone was shocked — except those who knew him.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
08/01/2016
As the go-to quick-hit graphic biographer of the current political circus, Rall (Snowden, Bernie) has been a reliable source of simple narratives delivered with a heavy dose of progressive editorializing. With Trump, Rall takes a less aggressive approach for a simple reason. Donald J. Trump’s entire life story, from his privileged upbringing to being a military-school bully, real-estate huckster, reality show clown, and putative quasifascist leader of the free world, speaks for itself. Rall’s critique of Trump is clear from the beginning, but he doesn’t let his viewpoint get in the way of some sharp analysis of the Republican primary (“like any good businessman, Trump exploited an inefficiency in the marketplace, in this case, of ideas”) and Trump’s business personality. As usual, Rall’s blocky art is more functional than anything else, and pages using screen grabs from Web news reports make the book seem rushed. Overall, it’s a concise and decently footnoted pocket political biography that Clinton’s campaign should buy thousands of and distribute to voters for free. (July)
